Hello once more! This is Courtney Schafer, returning to guide you on one last journey through the under-read wilderness. (Apologies for the delay since my last post. It’s been a hell of a year.) My previous posts discussed treasures from the 1980s, the 1990s, and the 2000s; now I’ll finish off by taking a look at the current decade. The 2010s aren’t even over yet, and already I’ve read so many great books deserving of more attention that I found this list the most difficult of all to narrow down to reasonable length.

My usual caveats still apply: this list is personal in nature, and not meant to be exhaustive, nor even to identify the "best" books of the decade so far. I’ve simply chosen reads I enjoyed that seem to have slid under the radar and deserve to be discovered by more readers. I have also restricted myself to choosing only one book/series per author, and listing any given author only once over the four-decade span of my posting series.

As always, if you have favorite treasures of your own, don’t hesitate to share them in the comments! Read more... )

Indeed, we do have a comment policy.

What's with your subtitle?

It's a riff off an extremely obscure meme only Tom Hardy and Myspace fans will appreciate.
